Winogradsky/Sobel is pleased to announce our exclusive representation of the late Benny Carter, an icon in the world of jazz.
We will be seeking strategic film, TV, and commercial placements for Carter, and will contribute additional digital marketing strategy, all as part of our company’s approach to continue his legacy.
For over six decades Benny Carter has maintained a unique place in American Music. His contributions to the Jazz world are truly countless, and to this day continue to inspire and motivate artists of all genres.
As Duke Ellington once wrote: “The problem of expressing the contributions that Benny Carter has made to popular music is so tremendous it completely fazes me, so extraordinary a musician is he.”
As a soloist Carter was the model for swing era alto saxophonists. He is nearly unique in his ability to double on trumpet, which he plays in an equally distinctive style. In addition, he is an accomplished clarinetist, and has recorded proficiently on piano and trombone. As an arranger, he helped chart the course of big band jazz, and his compositions, such as “When Lights Are Low” and “Blues In My Heart,” have become jazz standards.
Carter has also made major musical contributions to the world of film and television. His musicianship and personality have won him the respect of fellow artists and audiences on every continent.
